The words of Dr. Gubad Ibadoglu’s children are enough to break anyone’s heart. Their father, a renowned economist and opposition figure in Azerbaijan, is in critical condition. His health is deteriorating rapidly due to complications with his heart issues and unmanageable blood sugar levels. The situation has left him immobile and in immense pain, requiring urgent medical attention.
It’s a dire situation, and Dr. Gubad’s children are pleading for assistance from everyone, including politicians, parliament, public figures, human rights supporters, journalists, and freedom organizations. Dr. Gubad used to take medication for his L4 nerve damage and degeneration in his spinal column. However, he urgently needs a new prescription for adequate pain relief and physical therapy. He requires a medication that will not increase his heart rate and at least minimal physical exercise to keep his body functioning.
Dr. Gubad’s family is pressing to get him access to private doctors and obtain at least a prescription so they can buy him medications. However, they have been met with resistance at every turn. The authorities in Azerbaijan have denied Dr. Gubad even the most basic medical care, and his situation is fast becoming urgent, indeed. He is unable to stand without experiencing intense pain and must stay seated even during court hearings, where he works as an economist.
Dr. Gubad’s current condition is entirely reversible, but time is running out. His situation requires immediate attention from the relevant authorities. The authorities must work to expedite the process of getting Dr. Gubad the necessary medications that he needs to ease his pain. It is also essential that they permit him to receive physical therapy and engage in physical activity, which is crucial to his recovery.
Dr. Gubad Ibadoglu is a significant opposition figure in Azerbaijan, and his work has helped to promote freedom and democracy in his home country. His contribution to society is invaluable, and it would be a tragedy to lose him. Therefore, it is incumbent upon the authorities to act with urgency to save his life. Given the current state of his health, any delay or inaction would be nothing short of a grave human rights violation. We urge anyone in a position of influence to lend their support and call for swift action to save Dr. Gubad Ibadoglu’s life. It is the right thing to do.
